's barbara starr is live at the pentagon and kyung lah is in south korea. barbara, a day of confusion and mixed messages. what do we think we know and what don't we know? >> well, piers, this is very serious business. for the pentagon, the biggest problem is they don't really have specific intelligence about what's going on inside north korea, no assets on the ground, no personnel. they can only make assumptions and they are essentially assuming the worst case scenario. that from the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. here's where we stand tonight. the defense intelligence agency says that north korea has nuclear weapons, it can put on top of ballistic missiles and deliver those to a target, not very reliable but small comfort, i suppose. still the assessment is they can do it. the pentagon issued a statement saying they hadn't -- the north koreans hadn't fully tested and developed such technology but nobody, piers, is denying that that is exactly what they're working on and that is exactly what the north korean regime is after. piers? >> kyung lah, this is clearly a very disturbi

than the world thought before. let's go to our pentagon correspondent chris lawrence. chris, does the u.s. still think north korea is going to test the missile? >> reporter: they think it is a matter of time at this point, although obviously they would prefer he not conduct that test. they have seen north korea move two missiles to the east coast, they have seen him raise the launcher and then lower it, but they're not sure if that means kim may be backing off his threat or if they're just testing out before firing. key thing to look for, tomorrow night, sunday night our time, it is already april 15th in korea. that's the birthday of north korea's founder. a lot of folks we talk to say they expect to see a test on or before that date. >> what about the new intelligence assessment coming from the penalty gone that north korea may be further along now than we thought in terms of actually being able to put a nuclear war head on a missile? >> reporter: that's right. that was part of a bigger assessment that came from the defense intelligence agency. part of their job is to look at the missi
